This is a wonder bed and breakfast to stay at. Rita our hostess made an excellent breakfast for us. She was very accommodating and gave us a wonderful history of the house. Great place to stay instead of a hotel.

If you like really old houses and history you may enjoy staying here. Rita, the hostess and proprietor, was helpful and friendly, and served a delicious breakfast of buttermilk pancakes with strawberries and blueberries, bacon, juice, and milk. She made a special trip to the store for milk when she learned we are not coffee drinkers. The bedroom are decorated...

I make those pancakes from my mother's recipe. She raised 5 kids on them! Glad to know our special touches are appreciated. We love pampering our guests! Thank you for taking time to review our B&B.

Beautiful house and setting. Our room was spacious and sunny, with a beautiful roomy bathroom. Our stay there added greatly to the enjoyment of our week-end in Iowa Falls. Our hostess was lovely and accommodating, the breakfast superb, and everything super clean.

I would highly recommend this wonderful Bed & Breakfast. We actually rented the entire house for our family (12 of us) to celebrate a birthday. The owner, Rita, did everything possible to make us comfortable. We so appreciated her taking care of the details and making us feel so at home. The historical home is situated on a hill overlooking...

Lovely old Victorian home that's been refurbished to original beauty. It's a treat just walking through the house. The whole experience was wonderful. Bedroom very comfy with nice bath. Breakfast to die for. (Owner makes the BEST pancakes!)

River's Bend Bed and Breakfast was a real treat. My girlfriends from kindergarten and myself stayed there August 3 and 4th. The weather was perfect. Rita, the owner, was so wonderful.

Nice historic home, enjoyed the second floor balcony off library in the evening. Saw hummingbirds, gold finches, and one deer in the wildlife department, pretty river across street is a great plus on this. Enjoyed the tallboy type bed in river view room. Host is charming, accommodating, and breakfast was nice as well (unlike some other B &B's).

Thank you for your compliments and bringing to our attention that the hummingbird feeder needed filling and that Goldfinches were the ones eating our volunteer sunflowers. We love our birds! (and flowers) We also love our guests. Thanks, again.

My entire family stayed at River's Bend over the Fourth of July. Each room was unique and my son and daughter-in-law really enjoyed the Bliss Suite. It is clean and the architecture and decor are gorgeous. The food was amazing and the owner was very accommodating. We will definitely have family and friends stay again soon.

My husband was born and raised in Iowa Falls. His siblings and spouses returned this week to bury their mother. We stayed at the Riversbend B & B.

How great to accommodate someone who has known this home for a lot longer than I. You taught me things about the River's Bend and Iowa Falls that I had never known. We appreciated an opportunity to host another terrific family during their stay in the "Greenbelt" of Iowa.
